Road Accident

Four killed in N17 head-on collision

Two males and two women, all in their late 30s, were reported deceased, according to authorities.

11 others, including the two drivers, suffered significant injuries, according to Moeti Mmusi of the Mpumalanga Community Safety Department

One of the minibus cabs, according to Mmusi, had only one passenger and was travelling from Kinross to Leandra when the accident occurred

"All of the people who died, as well as nine people who were critically hurt, were in another minibus.

This minibus was on its way to Kinross from Leandra. The injured were sent to hospitals in the area

"At this time, the exact cause of the collision is unknown. "However, the investigation has already begun," he stated

The Easter weekend is renowned for claiming many lives on the roads as people come home in large numbers, therefore motorists are reminded to drive with utmost caution.

Vusi Shongwe, Mpumalanga's MEC for Community Safety, Security, and Liaison, has urged motorists to drive safely and within the regulations over the long weekend.

"Let us stick to the rules as much as possible." To keep ourselves safe on the road, let us be more patient. Long-distance travellers must stop and rest frequently.

"Fatigue impairs the driver's ability to concentrate and make informed decisions," Shongwe explained.
